Time to blow some dust off Vocoditor. And guess what? It wasn't that bad, after all!

Drag & Drop works just fine now (even though finding programming examples was painful AND the example was Wrong.) I fixed the comment writing problems with new version of vorbiscomment. Once I fix the UTF-8 issue, it'll be just perfect and I can do the long-waited 1.1 release. =)

It's now in ItWorksForMe(tm) state again! I can drag stuff to it from Nautilus, and works from Nautilus with (Right click)→Open With→Vocoditor after I added it to appropriate place.

(Update: I did that UTF-8 thing. Too bad the conversion requires Recode because apparently GTK+/Perl is running GTK+ 1.2 and as such uses only national encodings - which isn't good from Perl's use utf8; pragma's point of view? Does Perl support conversions of UTF-8 strings to locale's own character set? Any ideas?)

Also, yesterday I fixed the MazeHack thing. Now it works in Glorious 3D, the viewpoint looks credible, and it can be controlled with joypad just fine. Next up: Culling of stuff and fog, textures, again working map mode, and other unnecessary stuff like that.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
